A rare pink dolphin has been making the rounds in the waters near Louisiana, and this little lady is in the headlines now for more than just her unique color. She might be pregnant!
The dolphin that has been affectionately dubbed Pinky was first spotted about eight years ago by Captain Erik Rue of Calcasieu Charter Service and has been frequently seen by sailors and fans alike.
"We still see her swimming almost every day in the summertime. We've seen her a lot in the last few weeks. She looks happy and healthy," Rue said.
Rue added that he recently encountered Pinky mating and speculates she might be pregnant. But if she is, what color do you think the baby would be? Pink dolphins don't usually appear outside the Amazon River, so to have just one pink dolphin in the US is quite amazing, but to have another one? How cool!
